Hello, I'm Daniel Yavascave with the BBC news. Anti-government protesters in Sudan have vowed to continue their demonstrations until the military hands back power to a civilian authority. Despite the appointment of Sudan's third leader in as many days, General Abdel Fattah Abdelrahman Burhan took over as head of Sudan's transitional military council late on Friday. Protesters welcomed the news but wanted more change. Reem Abbas is a writer in Khartoum. The economy is in shambles, okay. But this is why we need the government of technocrats. We don't need a transitional military council that will be unable to deliver anything. We need the right people in the right place and this is what people are saying. There are already plans in the making. People have been working for a very long time to have emergency economic plan, emergency plans for different issues. So this needs to be delivered. This is why we need a civilian government. We need to build institutions that can actually sustain and preserve democracy.

Mr. Kim said that during the talks in Hanoi on February, the US came up with a completely unrealistic plan. He said that Washington stuck with that calculation, the path ahead would be bleak and dangerous.
